Can someone send me the procedure on how to convert my ASAs to SSH?  I want to remove Telnet and allow only SSH.  I have two 5520s and a pair of 5540s running 8.x code.

These are the steps to enable SSH access-

Generate rsa key pair:

1. crypto  key generate rsa modulus 1024

Set up a local user name and pwd:

2.  username x password x

3. passwd x

Enable ssh access for a host or subnet and specify the interface they reside on:

4. ssh x.x.x.x x.x.x.x

To use the local database for authentication:

5.  aaa authentication ssh console LOCAL
